A note from the author is using a fluid layout based upon work by Dave Reeder. I'm trying to take CSS a little more seriously; but I'm having a hard time because of all of the bad syntax, browser compatibility hacks, and non-fluid layouts. If any of the other technology I used were like CSS, I'd have to set myself on fire and jump off of a cliff.

This is a really great artists visualization of invisible magnetic fields. The combination of voice-overs, random lab footage and animation creates an effect that is creepy and wonderful at the same.
